We luv, luv, luv our local library!
I bet you do too! Its a place of respite, entertainment, and joy.
Conversely, Brave New World blog writes a sad post called Library Budget Cuts And Challenges Are Global.
As you can see, a casualty of our global economic decline is the cutting of funding for local libraries, and its not just in the US. So for our American readers - the ALA – American Library Association has created Library Advocacy Day. But what can we do?
There are many ways you can get involved - A link for the general public’s web page from the ALA to find ways to support your local library – ilovelibraries.org.
- Find out more by going to the legislative action center at the ALA, and contact your local representative to keep our libraries accessible for everyone.
So get your self a badge, post it on your blog. Or better yet go to the legislative action center and contact your state or local representative to make sure your branch or those of your neighbors will stay accessible to you. For our global readers I will keep my eyes peeled for information for you too!
Have a great Monday!
